CHP offers free driver safety class
A free Start Smart class for teen drivers and their parents or guardians will be held May 29 at South Tahoe High School Library.
The class is designed to help newly licensed and future licensed teenage drivers become aware of the responsibilities that accompany the privilege of being a licensed California driver. The program was created in an effort to preemptively reduce the number of teen injuries and deaths resulting from vehicle collisions.
Through candid conversations, officers in attendance will address the facts and provide examples of driving tendencies that put young drivers at risk. This program aims to help teens understand that driving is serious and a poor choice behind the wheel of a car can put their lives and the lives of others in jeopardy.
The class will be held from 6-8 p.m at the South Tahoe High School Library, 1735 Lake Tahoe Blvd. It will be the last Start Smart class offered for the 2011-12 school year. To reserve a space in the class, call the California Highway Patrol at 530-577-1001.
